Enjoying the build! One thing I'd do though is add some support for the swingarm pivot to the frame. Relying on the "ears" of the relatively lightweight alloy rear transmission casting to handle the stress of that larger/heavier swingarm, rear drive and wheel bouncing around off-road, could be a recipe for dramatic failure.
